The Stargate upgrade is expected to deliver a more powerful version of IBC than what was originally proposed in the Cosmos whitepaper.
As we head into July, let's take a look at where the Cosmos Hub is at with staking, rewards, spending, governance, and power distribution.
Introducing Stargate, the largest Cosmos upgrade yet. Stargate will enable higher transaction throughput, cross-chain transactions, accelerate UI development, and so much more.
As we head into June, let's take a look at where the Cosmos Hub is at with staking, rewards, spending, governance, and power distribution.
Game of Zones (GOZ) is an incentivized testnet designed to educate the Cosmos community of validators on how to operate IBC relayers.
Figment' March & April 2020 Cosmos Hub network analysis for staking and validator metrics.
Q1 2020 governance update: deliverables for Prop23 complete (including parameter-change documentation), and a look at Cosmos Governance for Q2 2020.
Cosmos parameter-change governance proposals enable voting to enact changes to the Cosmos Hub. Learn more...
We recommend using the Ledger hardware wallet if you or your organization would like to maintain complete control of your assets in a secure way.
Cosmos Governance February Update: Zaki working on a legal entity accountable to Cosmos governance for dev work, Sunny working on changing how Hub slashing works, and Gavin is working on parameter change & community-spend docs.
Drafting and submitting a community-spend governance proposal is a process that takes time, attention, and involves risk. However, proposals also have the potential to enact funding for important Cosmos Hub work. Version 1.0 of the 'Community Spend Best Practices' documentation is intended to make community-spend proposals easier to create and more likely to be fully assessed.
Cosmos February 2020 Network Analysis. Updated key metric: staking economics - effective inflation (& rewards) lower than what's reported.
How can I accurately report my staking rewards income for tax purposes if it's not recorded on the blockchain? We have the solution.
There are more ATOM staked this month than last. The number of newly-minted ATOMs is in keeping with the monthly average of ~1.4M on Cosmos.
Topics range from how the GWG should operate, to the philosophy of community-spend proposals, and include governance protocol functionality.
The main drivers of the ATOM's value could be more than transaction fees. ATOM-holders should be able to extract value in different ways.
The Cosmos Hub 3 launched with enhanced governance functionality, but without guidance for creating or assessing proposals. We're preparing to launch a proposal to improve Cosmos Hub governance. This proposal is intended to fund the development of the Cosmos Governance Working Group.
9% commission rate on Cosmos Hub: A great opportunity to align your stake with a solid contributor. We’ve worked hard to diversify revenue streams.
Nov 5, 2019: Zaki Manian & Dean Tribble - Cosmos IBC & Game of Zones AMA. GoZ trains IBC operators w 100k ATOMs in rewards.
In a world of countless, siloed blockchains, IBC is what will connect them all together. Data and token value will be transferrable between chains.
How does coupling governance with validators change incentives? The change may have some implications for Cosmos Governance.
It's important to understand that Cosmos inflation is different than its rewards rate.Think of Cosmos newly-minted ATOMs as pie.
Cypher Core recently appeared on our radar for their open source Cosmos applications. Their expertise on Cosmos staking is hard to argue.
We spent the last two days in sunny Berlin for the Cosmos Interchain Conference put on by the Cosmos/Tendermint team and the Interchain Foundation.
There have been a few operational incidents in which large validators on the Cosmos Hub experienced prolonged downtime due to validator infrastructure.
When thinking about and participating in Cosmos governance proposals, our process will be a bit different from conventional legal practices.
The Cosmos Network mainnet has launched and pulled off a rare feat for a Proof of Stake network: a totally decentralized start.
Now that the Cosmos Hub has launched, Delegators are beginning to join the network and choose a Cosmos Validator by delegating their ATOMs.
As a Delegator, you should have a good understanding of your Cosmos Validator approach so you can better understand your slashing risk for Atom loss.
As we near the end of the great Game of Stakes (GoS) experiment, we wanted to take stock of what we’ve learned and share the new questions we are asking.
We do not plan to form or join a cartel in the upcoming Cosmos Game of Stakes. This is not to say that we’re just going to roll over for the Game of Stakes!
We’ve open sourced Hubble and moved it to a new home at https://hubble.figment.network. Hubble will start syncing Gaia-9000 when the network launches.
As the Cosmos network gets closer to launch, a key question is how the Cosmos delegator system for Validators will work within the network.
The Cosmos Network plans to be the "Internet of Blockchains". The Cosmos Hub is designed to allow other blockchains, termed “Zones”, to interoperate
